I always strive for simple solutions to all my problems, akWpLightBox plugin is result of one such endeavor.
For quite some time now I was looking for a plugin which is lightweight, and can show images in lightbox like effect, in my blog.
This made my job pretty easier, now I can have my lightbox effect, all i needed to was convert it into a wordpress plugin. So I did some modifications to the prettyPhoto to suite my needs, and here is the result of my work. Check out an working example below.
How To Install
- Just download the akwpLightbox plugin, akwplightbox.zip.
- Extract akwplightbox.zip into akwpLightbox folder.
- Upload this folder into ‘wp-content/plugin’ folder.
- Now go to plugins section in admin and activate the plugin
Now, enjoy the lightbox effect.
How To use
Next time when you are adding a image in the post or page, just remember to link you image to full size image, or to image that you want to show in the lightbox. You may want to check “title” attribute of anchor tag, this will be displayed below the image as caption in the lightbox.
